MAYOR of Palma Joan Fageda and deputy Mayor José María Rodríguez yesterday witnessed the start of demolition of the former Hotel Isla Azul in the Plaza Pius IX, Can Pastilla. The plot of land will be ceded to Ib-Salut, the Balearic health service, for the construction of a health centre.
The demolition and cleaning up of the site will cost 130'900 euros and will be paid for by the city council.
Work is expected to take several months.
When work is finished, Ib-Salut will be able to build its health centre, a unit specialising in physiotherapy and women's care, which will provide facilities for a population of 14'534 persons. The city council will reserve part of the site for municipal services.
The operation attracted quite a large crowd at Can Pastilla, a resort which is usually bustling in the summer but is relatively quiet at this time of the year. The hotel had been closed for some time and its facilities were obsolete.
It was a busy day for Mayor Fageda and Rodriguez who also opened the Paseo de Levante, a new public space in the Polígono de Levante district.

This new facility has cost more than 604'000 euros.
Later in the day, the Mayor opened the Plaza de Sa Garriga in the Cami Destre, between Son Sardina and Son Espanyol.
This was not a new square, but it has been given a facelift.
